Kenya: Assembly Approves Last Batch of 2013-14 Allocation

THE Trans Nzoia assembly has passed a motion to use the last amount of money from the 2013-14 financial year.

Treasury sent the Sh397 million to the county's accounts on the last day of the financial year.

The motion was moved in the house by leader of majority Alfred Weswa and seconded by Kapomboi MCA Edward Kitur.

"Unless this bill is treated as the matter of urgency, the county government of Trans Nzoia shall be obliged by law to refund the same" Weswa said in the motion.

"I therefore move that the same be accordingly approved".

Sh120 million will be used to pay salaries for this month as there will be expenditure delays in disbursements.

Sh60 million will be paid to K-Rep as security after the bank gave Sh5 million loans to the 40 MCAs to buy cars and get mortgages.

Sh17 million will go to the assembly.

Sh20 million is for operations in the county government.

The Trans Nzoia Referral Hospital has been given Sh105 million.

The rest of the money will be put in the development account.
